Keep scrolling to learn about, and take a virtual tour of what was known for over a century as The Creswell Mansion but now goes by, simply, Marijuana Mansion.
Colorado's Creswell Mansion
The Creswell Mansion was first designed back in 1889 by one of the leading architects in Denver, Colorado at the time, John J. Huddart.
The mansion is 2.5 stories tall, is 4,200 square feet in area, and is located right in the heart of downtown Denver at 1244 Grant Street, which is just a few blocks away from the Colorado state capitol.
Like most buildings that have been around for as long as this mansion, frequent paranormal activity has been reported over the years including a recurring apparition of a woman in one of the mansion's windows.
The mansion was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1977, but it's what came much later that is most well-known about it.
Colorado's Creswell Mansion Becomes Marijuana Mansion
When Colorado legalized recreational marijuana via Amendment 64 back in 2012, the law firm known as Vicente Sederberg LLP had a lot to do with it and even wrote the amendment.
Well, the Marijuana Mansion got its current name due to the fact that this law firm operated out of it at the time of legalization, and was joined by the National Cannabis Industry Association.
The mansion was purchased in 2019 and the 1,500-square-foot carriage house was converted into a dispensary by the name of Green Dragon.
Known today as Marijuana Mansion, the mansion is available for private parties as well as marijuana-themed ghost tours during the Halloween season.
